What a wonderful old building but in need of urgent repair. The building was being restored so we could not go inside.

I have been here for a few different events and always find the staff to be incredibly friendly and helpful (and knowledgeable of the local area) The building itself is just the cutest thing and the fin bar upstairs is decorated perfectly providing the ideal venue for a pre or post show pint. Love it.

Visited recently and had a great night. Recently interesting venue with a capacity of around 50 and the smallest stage in the country. More people should know about this place and visit because real quirky places like this are few and far between.

The history and the famous names that have been patrons in the past are truly a revelation. They allow local residents groups to use the venue. Some top names in the theatre scene appear there now. A must visit!!

The smallest theatre in England has recently been updated. The variety of shows on has been extended, as has the stage. It feels quite intimate because you are so close to the stage.

I've been to the Tom Thumb a few times now and love going there. Going to this theatre is a unique experience, just imagine going to the theatre in your front room! All the seats are near the front, so when the curtains of the tiny stage open, you'll have a great seat. Recent shows we've been to include the... More
